Release Notes: The new machine code generator makes Pike 7.4 the fastest version of Pike so far and possibly the fastest scripting language of them all. This release also introduces iterators, a foreach construct for both indices and values, greater precision in scope handling, a better Hilfe, and vastly-improved autodoc coverage. Among the new modules are XML with namespaces support, RDF, and binary relations, setting the aim for making Pike the first scripting language for the Semantic Web. Media-oriented people will be glad to see support for SDL, DVB, ID3v2, and a host of new image formats.
Release Notes: Support for MacOSX, AIX 5L, NetBSD, and Win32 was improved. Support for SSL/TLS was added. The compiler and interpreter were optimized. Support for SNMP was added. Support for Unicode was improved. Support for big5, sjis, euc, and koi8 was added. Lots of bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: First release of Pike 7.2. This release contains numerous updates, please read the changelog for full details.
Release Notes: Many improvements over the 0.6.x series.
Release Notes: This release adds GTK Gui support, local functions, lexical scopes for lambda functions and local functions, non-crippled crypto modules, lots of new modules (CommonLog, Gettext, HTTPLoop, Java, Msql, Mysql, Odbc, Oracle, Parser, Perl, Postgres, SANE, Ssleay (requires the Ssleay library), sybase, GTK, GL, GLUT), support for many new image formats, more cleanups in the module system, much better support for wide strings, and better type checking.
Release Notes: Process handling has been changed to use a wait thread on Solaris and AIX. This should solve any 'pike lost track of a child' problems. Version 0.6.131 also contains many minor bugfixes and glibc2 threads does no longer hang testsuite.
Release Notes: Pike 0.6.110 has been moved from beta status to stable.
